We Got The Jazz, Joburg’s new monthly live music series, a collaboration by the people at Untitled Basement and Thandi Ntuli, Standard Bank’s Young Artist of the Year (Jazz) 2018.
Curated by DJ Kenzhero and Thandi Ntuli, the series features new wave Jazz, Funk, Afrobeats, Hip-hop and Soul artists from across Africa and around the world, from time to time… we will tap into the masters of the scene, the misfits and the hanger-on-groupie-muso’s to bring as much entertainment value and artistic innovation to the stage.
We Got The Jazz August edition features Mpho Sebina, a leading new voice of R&B x NEO SOUL 2.0, the artist based between her home town Botswana and Johannesburg has people talking across the scene in both cities, her vocal performances are second to none, bringing beautifully crafted nolstalgic hip-hop/jazzy/soul references into new forms. Mpho Sebina will work with Thandi Ntuli, DJ Kenzhero and the untitled basement’s resident band to create a once off limited edition performance for We Got The Jazz loyalists... as we do keep it in the family the band will feature Thembinkosi Mavikela on bass, Wandile Molefe on piano, Sam Ibeh on drums and Sthembiso Bhengu on trumpet, this edition will no doubt deliver a stellar performance.
Also featuring on the decks is local rising star DJ Deniece Marz and DJ Vardz know for her party rocking old skool meets 90's hip-hop set.
We Got The Jazz is presented by Untitled Basement in collaboration with The Glenlivet Scotch Whisky.
